What sizes did you go with? Hope there was a hidden Beaulieu for you!
Prices went up already
6. Honestly I knew you were going to pickup the 6.5 so I considered buying them earlier since I knew I could sell them to you if they didn't fit. However i didn't like having heel slip on the hoves so I went smaller. It's closer to glove like.
I usually wear Forest last in 8, reckon I should go E width with GG?
Not on G&G yet.
twinsies! Hope you get the right fit! The Sinatras should be amazing! I just couldn't get myself to buy EG or G&G in black... I love the burnishing too much and will save the black wholecut for Vass' new last
Was on the fence on buying trees, oh well, that solved my thinking...
I hear you, honestly I don't wear suits a lot so I have little use for black but I'm slowly getting over my hatred for wearing black, especially during the evening. Also, to be honest, I don't think I've ever seen a wholecut that looked better than the Sinatra and it didn't seem like any other color was more appropriate for a wholecut than Black. Just love the shape and 6 eyelets. If I got something else I'd want to upgrade later on anyway so it's worth the 200 premium to me to get what I really want.
Lol well be twins on a lot of shoes. Shannon, galway, dover, Beaulieu.
It probably will be the same for the speed hooks. my jumper boots from skoak were the same. As for the soles, I'm guessing the majority will prefer the single dainite as it is more of a dress boot. And shipping to the US would be an extra of 300 SEK.
This is a really good question honestly. Could the awesome guys @Skoaktiebolaget enlighten us on this. Thanks!
I would like to propose a gmto for the Carmina 80092 balmoral boot on the elusive Robert last.
I'll email Skoaktiebolaget once we reach 6 interested members.
Currently interested members:
For museum: @laufer @itraxx ,
For Dark Brown: @appoooh
Members who don't mind either colour (I'm assuming): @fllick , @JARB , @Dieg0
Potentially interested members:
@j ingevaldsson , @aglose , @appoooh (depending on pictures or tannery of museum calf or maybe not at al)
Interested members please quote and add your name in.Thank you.
Price: 3120 sek for either brown calf or brown museum calf.
Specs: 80092 balmoral boot
eyelets: 10: 6 blind 4 speed hooks
colour: dark brown, museum calf (I'm fine with either and will go with the majority)
Soles: Dainite rubber soles
The boot looks like this

or this colour
So how many members are interested in Rober last boot in dark brown calf shaft and dark brown suede on leather soles?
I would be in on this on a rubber sole. Whats the status of the GMTO?
I might be in as well. Would also like to know if it is Ilcea's museum calf or not before deciding.
This indeed is very good question and I would like an answer too.
@Skoaktiebolaget Do you have any photos to show what brown the upcoming Carmina suede double monks are? Are they as dark as these from The Nordic Fit (also on the Inca last)?
Been meaning to buy the tobacco Carmina chukka for ever and now their gone. Looks like the impending price increase threw everyone into a buying frenzy...
Just picked up my Carmina balmoral boots from SkoAB! At first try they feel wonderful, much softer than I expected them to be.
I do however prefer the previous colour scheme more than this one; there was more of a contrast between the calf and grain on the older version. To remedy this, I'm thinking about trying to make the grain darker on my boots and that brings my to the following question: what polish do you guys recommend (from Burgol)? Dark brown, black?
